MedinAction: Your House Call Doctor Everywhere
When we were on our England/Italy trip 2016 my mom got sick. We were in Assissi in the North of Italy. Assissi is a small town and we were headed to Rome the following day. I searched on the internet looking for potential ways to get a doctor to come our hotel and see her. We had taken out travel insurance with TravelGuard, but we had no idea what to do, who to see, or where to go. I found MedinAction and got ahold of Andrea – the owner and principle doctor. He quickly arranged a time to come to the hotel, brought a med kit, and was able to diagnose my mom and give her medication. He was a real blessing.
None of us spoke Italian and from what we had heard the Italian medical system can be quite complicated for foreigners. When we were in Assissi we were informed that it was highly unlikely that the doctors at the local hospital would even speak English. Finding MedinAction put me in direct contact, using whatsapp, with Andrea and we received the medical attention that we needed.
In fact, had my mom’s needs required a hospital their service will facilitate that as well. They were work with a clinic network that can perform scans, run tests, and admit if necessary. They are a 24/7 service and will speak to you in English. If you require a specialist they will assist you as well as a liaison. It’s a fantastic service that we found a lot of value in. We were charged roughly €150 for the visit. The prescriptions ran another €60. Cheap compared to what a service like this would cost in the USA.
